I need to get a name from differnt URI's

The URI can be in theis formats

http://localhost:8080/chapter_admin/steve

or

http://localhost:8080/chapter_admin/steve?action=dsdsd&L=dasdas&P=dadsdasd&uid=ddasda

I am using this code

String chapter = request.getRequestURI().substring(15);

this code works fine with the first URL but not with the second, I only need "steve" from both these url's , would anyone know how to do this

Thanks

Hey there,

You could also try

URL url = new URL(request.getRequestURI());

then you have access to all the individual components of the url using:

url.getHost(), url.getPort, url.getProtocol() etc....

Thanks,
Nish

String chapter = request.getRequestURI();
int index = chapter.lastIndexOf("/");
chapter = chapter.substring(index);
index = chapter.indexOf("?");
if (index > 0)
  chapter = chapter.substring(0, index);
System.out.println(chapter);

Try that, maybe that would help you out.
